So the leap to excel at FlexPod monitoring, well…wasn’t even a leap, just a very natural progression of our product development.
(PRWEB) July 17, 2012
LogicMonitor, the leading SaaS-based IT infrastructure monitoring solution for physical, virtual, and cloud environments, today announced its sponsorship of the VMware User’s Group (VMUG) event at the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis on July 26, 2012. The LogicMonitor team will be on hand to demonstrate its hosted monitoring solution, which is transforming the FlexPod and VMware monitoring playing fields.
“When the IT department gets complaints about things like an application running slow, the finger-pointing, figuratively and sometimes literally, begins,” says LogicMonitor Founder and Chief Product Officer, Steve Francis. “And multiple people using multiple monitoring tools run around trying to figure it out. Is it the virtualization platform or the application or the network or possibly the storage device? With LogicMonitor the monitoring data for all of the infrastructure is right there in a single pane of glass, integrated and accessible to anyone in the organization.” Which means problems get solved quickly and effectively, according to Francis.
The ability to effectively monitor all levels of the IT infrastructure is especially relevant to VMware users, who by definition are dependent on reliable and high-functioning storage, network and server infrastructure on which to setup and run virtualization environments. This necessity has fueled the growing popularity of FlexPod — a pre-configured and validated architecture containing server, storage and networking components that’s ready for use “out-of-the-box” — among VMware users. LogicMonitor has positioned itself as the go-to standard for FlexPod users.
“LogicMonitor clients have long enjoyed, even raved about, how well we monitor NetApps and VMware, along with servers and the rest of their infrastructure,” says Francis. “So the leap to excel at FlexPod monitoring, well…wasn’t even a leap, just a very natural progression in our product evolution. With FlexPod it’s, ‘Here’s your virtualization infrastructure, all ready to go,’ and with LogicMonitor it’s, ‘Oh, and here’s your FlexPod monitoring, too, all ready to go.”
LogicMonitor’s sponsorship of the Indianapolis VMware User’s Group is part of the company’s ongoing effort to expand awareness. “We have hundreds of enthusiastic clients worldwide, including a great deal of VMware and NetApp users,” says Francis. “And our experience has been that once they learn about us and try us out, they become clients. The Indy VMUG is a great opportunity for us to get out to another region of the country, meet people face-to-face, and wave the LogicMonitor flag.”
LogicMonitor staff will be on hand at booth #40 at the convention center event to answer questions about VMware and FlexPod monitoring and will extend an incentive aimed at letting VMUG attendees get a risk free, in-depth trial of LogicMonitor.
